How many apartments have you either lived in or visited that had an elevator explode and not be investigated and repaired? It has to be repaired period! I".

Ah, speaking of killing the comedy....

Bomb squad, and Haz Mat was called and 3 hours later at about 4am we cleared the call. Bright minds but dumb as hell as far as using common sense!

Yes, a bomb blew up in the elevator, destroying the entire interior infrastructure, the shaft, everything. The landlord is probably saying it is currently being fixed and taking his time as the cost would mean he would probably have to go out of business to replace all of that.

Why would the school rebuild the stairs if they wanted to? The school has nothing to do with the building. The school does not go around to all the businesses miles and miles away saying, hey we'll fix that for you. Please, get over your whole school obsession. Sure there are some smart people there and they do some good things, but they are not running around fixing everything and they don't own every building every employee lives in.

The city of course said no thanks.The students and alumni get cheap rent when staying on a school owned apartment building.

No way they own the building Sheldon lives in. If they did it wouldn't still take two of them to live in one apartment to afford it (which they have stated). There would be more employees living there instead of the type of people they have shown living there. Sure Cal Tech owns some buildings but there are thousands and they own a few.

I didn't mean for that to happen!

I brought up the elevator because I thought in the scheme of things that the elevator is a bigger elephant in the room than most of the other stuff that people have complained about "not making sense"... unfortunately, I proved my point by getting everyone talking about the elevator smile.gif

Yeah baby!  It's Halloween!
